After another washout at the weekend it actually turned out to be dry (but very cold) on Saturday, and as I write this on Monday afternoon it is virtually cracking the flags outside (compared to previous April days). Anyway, all junior cricket has been called off this week, so we are hoping to start with the seniors on Saturday and the under 11s on Sunday.

Now, it was only a matter of time before the call came, and this week it did indeed come. Derbyshire CCC were getting a bit short of players so they rang me up and asked me to play on Wednesday. Unfortunately I cant, but may make an appearance in two weeks time. No, it wasn’t a wrong number, and no they didn’t think my name was Madsen.

When I say it was only a matter of time, I meant until I reached 50, and therefore I am now eligible to play for incumbent County Champions Derbyshire Over 50s!

Theyve even asked me if I want a jacket.

I’ll let you know if there are any further call ups.
